Three new SDKs, and one update, offered by Samsung
In the wake of its new product announcements at MWC, Samsung introduced three new SDKs to developers while updating the Samsung Mobile SDK. Let's start, shall we, with the Gear 2 SDK. This will help developers create apps for the Tizen powered Samsung Gear 2 and Samsung Gear Neo smartwatches. With the trend toward health-related sensors appearing on phones and wearables, Samsung also introduced the S-Health SDK. This will allow developers to gain access to the sensors used on the Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Gear 2 and Samsung Fit to build appropriate health-related apps.


The update to Samsung Mobile SDK 1.5 beta 1 allows many of the new features on the Samsung Galaxy S5 to be accessed by developers, including the new fingerprint scanner. Based on the SDK, developers will be able to have their app request that the fingerprint scanner try to recognize the current user and "Verify whether the fingerprint of the current user matches the fingerprint registered on the device."

Pebble, the crowd-sourced smartwatch that became a commercial hit, released its first SDK in March 2013 and opened its iOS based appstore for iOS earlier this month.
